In 2014, Georgia celebrated the 2600th anniversary of the Georgian-Jewish friendship. Georgia is one of the few countries with no anti-Semitic sentiments. The Jewish community was formed in Georgia in 586 BC, and no surprise that there is a museum of history and ethnography of Georgian Jews in the country.
The Museum of History and Ethnography of Georgian Jews named after David Baazov is located in Tbilisi, near the Freedom Square, in the building of the “Dome” synagogue, which was closed in the 20s. David Baazov, a well-known active figure, had a huge contribution to the formation and development of the Jewish community in Georgia.
The museum displays exhibits depicting the friendship between Georgians and Jews. The museum presents photographs and documents of important events for 26 centuries.
